We Still Hold These Truths: Rediscovering America's Founding

Posted By Gerrit Lansing On November 10, 2009 @ 11:45 am In First Principles | Comments Disabled

This is the first of a five part series.

In the midst of frenzied efforts to remake our nation [1]—of endless government initiatives involved in virtually every aspect of our daily lives—Americans are increasingly concerned: How did we get so far off track? And how can we get America back on course? Matthew Spalding answers these questions in a new book, We Still Hold These Truths [2], by looking to the timeless principles and practical wisdom that have been the source of America’s monumental success.  An expert in American political history at The Heritage Foundation [3], Spalding calls for a great renewal of these unchanging principles—and a new appreciation of their preeminent status in our nation’s life.
